Fleur East is firing up new music for release this summer.
It’s been a fair while since The X Factor graduate dominated the dancefloor and airwaves alike with the sassy ‘Sax.’
A year and some change later, she says that her new single – the first from the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Love, Sax, & Flashbacks’ – is due in August.
Speaking in a recent interview, she said:
“This is the start of the second era, my next single is out in August. A few people have heard it in SyCo and everyone is buzzing. So we are literally just trying to get it right.”
She went on to assure that the delay between projects wasn’t due to any drama, adding:
“Everyone is still on board and everyone still supports me, it’s great.
You just can’t rush the creative process, it has to be right. It comes in waves and you put pressure on yourself and think ‘Oh, I need to release now’ but then I took my foot off the gas a little bit and thought I would just enjoy it.
I’m just making sure I’m getting it to the best it can be.”
Awesome news. And, if we’re to read between the lines, it looks as though the timeline of her roll-out will coincide with the return of The X Factor – a huge promo platform for her.
Fleur is a world-class talent and turned in a solid debut project, so here’s hoping album #2 delivers and is pushed accordingly.
